"Disappointed In The Sun" as written by Thomas Andrew Barman and Piet Jorens....
Who could tell the story better
About the things that I went through
Some were great but most were terrifying
And so spooky too

Had to get out of there, to hide away
Had to get out of there, to find my way
I troubled everything too soon
Now where I want to be is

Where I want to be is ...
Need I say my only wish was
To escape my earthly life
High skies were no option whereas

Diving deep in oceans wide
Was the way for me, to hide away
A possibility, to leave today
I troubled everything too soon

Now where I want to be is
Where I want to be is ...
Under the sea, is where I'll be
No talking 'bout the rain no more

I wonder what thunder will mean, when only in my dream
The lightning comes before the roar
Circumstantial situations, now I know what people meant
Beware of the implications, God I've had enough of them

Dedicated to be brave and find a way
Just picking out a wave and slide away
I troubled everything too soon
Now where I want to be is

Where I want to be is ...
Maybe taking it another hour
Then taking away the pain
Maybe taking it another hour

Then taking away the pain
Maybe taking it another hour
Then taking away the pain
Then taking away the pain

Then taking away the pain
Then taking away the pain
I troubled everything too soon
Now where I want to be is

Where I want to be is ...
Under the sea, is where I'll be
No talking 'bout the rain no more
I wonder what thunder will mean, when only in my dream

The lightning comes before the roar
Under the sea, down here with me I find I'm not the only one
Who ponders what life would mean if we hadn't been
So disappointed in the sun
And that's why we're thinking

That's why we're drinking in a bar under the sea
And that's why we're thinking
That's why we're drinking in a bar under the sea

    General CommentI think it's pretty clear that this song is about what many people experience when they face misunderstanding and go through hard times because of their difference from others.

    "Decided to be brave and hide away" - so shameful but true!

    I like that the song has a happy ending. The person finally finds people who understand him. I also like the line "so disappointed in the sun".

    I think the song might be a reference to Beatles' "Yellow Submarine", but it's only an assumption.

    General CommentThe protagonist is contemplating his suicide as a method to escape the problems associated with his "earthly life". Taking a leap is not his method, but drowning seems more appealing. The whole song talks of this and him tolerating maybe just one more hour then he'll drink at a bar under the sea".

    He lacks the courage to commit suicide which ironically is seen by most as a cowardly thing to do.
